The best-value, high-performance 50-Taper milling machines available today.

A Wide Range of Sizes and Features to Fit Any Shop’s Needs – 50-Taper milling machines

Haas offers a wide range of VF Series vertical machining centres and 50-Taper milling machines to match any size and production requirement. Regardless of your needs, there’s a VF just right to meet the demands of your machine shop.

Every VF Series vertical machining centre provides outstanding features at an excellent price. By the same token there are a wide range of available options to customise your machine to your exact needs. Not to mention all Haas machines are designed and built in California, USA.

The VF-3YT/50 provides the heavy cutting capacity of a 50-taper machine in a mid-size footprint. It has 6″ more Y-axis travel than the standard VF-3. A larger base casting provides the extended Y-axis travel, yet the machine’s footprint is only slightly larger than the standard VF-3. Heavy cast-iron construction yields the rigidity and stability necessary for heavy cutting, and the wide T-slot table provides plenty of room for fixturing and large parts.

  • 50-taper spindle with 2-speed gearbox
  • Extended Y-axis travel
  • Ideal for tougher materials and larger-diameter cutting tools

50-Taper Vertical Machining Centre; 1016 x 660 x 635 mm, 50- taper geared-head, 30 hp vector drive, 7500 rpm, 30+1 side-mount tool changer, 18 m/min rapids, colour remote jog handle, programmable coolant nozzle, automatic chip auger, power-failure detection module, 1 GB program memory, 15″ colour LCD monitor, USB port, Ethernet, memory lock keyswitch, rigid tapping and 208 litre flood coolant system.

How We Build The VF-1 CNC milling machine today

Back in the late eighties we started building our first VMC, the VF-1. We didn’t build them as efficiently as we do today, but they were good machines and laid the foundation for decades of milling machine development and improvement to come.

Today, our process is finely tuned and quite efficient for a machine that is still hand built to a great extent. Take a look at how we build the same VF that may be sitting on your shop floor not too long from now.

Wireless Intuitive Probing System

Drastically reduce setup times on your 50-Taper milling machines

Automate your high-speed machine’s setup process with the <a href=”https://www.haas.co.uk/wips/”>Haas Wireless Intuitive Probing System</a> (WIPS). WIPS is a complete probing package that includes the spindle probe, tool setting probe, and optical machine interface. Furthermore, powerful software that guides the operator through the job setup process with intuitive, easy-to-use templates. WIPS allows you to quickly and easily define work offset coordinates. Additionally, set tool length offsets, and perform in-process inspection.


Haas VF-2SS & HRC210 Demo

This demo was designed to show off the higher spindle speed and rapids of the VF-2SS and the quickness of the HRC210. 

You can also see in-process probing for part location and feature inspection using the Haas WIPS system.

VF-4 and TR200Y - Cutting Demo

Watch as our VF-4 mill joins forces with our TR200Y 5-Axis trunnion rotary table to put features on 5 sides of this block.
